It’s been a great week for celebrating women in STEMM, with the inaugural “Connecting Women in STEMM” National Conference held here in Melbourne.
Speaking to a diverse audience of over 200 representatives from industry, government and academia, BioMelbourne Network CEO, Dr Krystal Evans chaired a session on how women in STEMM programs benefit everybody and how increased diversity leads to better business, social and economic outcomes for all.
Our sector is trailblazing compared to other industries in relation to diversity with many high profile women in leadership positions, so let’s keep up the good work and in-bed gender diversity into our organisations at every level.
About Women in Science Australia
In less than two years Women in Science AUSTRALIA has grown into a nationally recognised association for women in STEMM. With almost 10,000 members and followers, our over-arching goal is to connect women in STEMM regardless of their discipline and profession. The momentum this has stimulated is exciting and our International Women’s Day event in March this year was a great success. Our website, blog and social media profiles are our primary engagement platforms and through these we connect with extraordinary people – hearing their stories, ideas and opinions, and networking like never before.
